Avantgarde combines the old virtues of instrument making with modern innovation.

The body is made from renewable materials using a 3D printer. The shape and the key system remain loyal to traditional construction.

We offer you an instrument that is significantly lighter than conventional contrabass recorders. RESONA makes the instrument less sensitive to fluctuations in humidity. Assembling and disassembling the recorder is much easier.

AVANTGARDE subbass, black
Avantgarde - the clever subbass recorder - in black. Pure elegance. Since 2007, the Kunath Instrumentenbau workshop has been producing parts for woodwind instruments using a special 3D printing process. The main aim was to use a material that sounds like wood and is made from renewable raw materials. As there was no material on the market that met these requirements, the team at Kunath Instrumentenbau, with the support of the Ministry of Science and Research, developed its own material: RESONA. Famous artists such as Dorothee Oberlinger and composers such as Josh Plotner use instruments made of instruments from RESONA in live concerts and studio recordings. studio recordings.Since 2022, Kunath Instrumentenbau has been producing more electricity in its own solar systems than the company needs annually. The machines that prepare the material for printing and the 3D printers run 24 hours a day. At night, they are powered by a 100 kWh battery with temporarily stored solar power.For these and many other reasons, Kunath Avantgarde is considered the new benchmark for sub-bass recorders.The overblowing keyOver 40 years ago, Herbert Paetzold invented the automatic overblowing key. With Avantgarde, we are making this practical mechanism available for the first time on a "non-cornered" bass recorder.The special advantages of the overblowing key: Firstly, it produces a more relaxed posture for the left hand, as the thumb can move closer to the position of the other fingers. Secondly, the overblowing key makes it easier to play high notes and octave leaps. A small movement of the tip of the thumb is enough to reliably activate the overblowing hole.Video on the overblowing keyScale length The inner bore of the recorder is cylindroconical. This type of bore gives the instrument its powerful sound. In principle, recorders with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and therefore more ensemble-compatible than instruments with a narrower inner bore. The capAs RESONA is extremely dimensionally stable, AVANTGARDE recorders do not suffer from cap jamming due to moisture. In order to ensure undisturbed airflow between the blowpipe, cap and windway in the head, AVANTGARDE has a new type of connection between the cap and head. The cap is perfectly fitted or removed with just half a turn.Video of the Quickfit capWhat styles of music can the flute be used for? RESONA is predestined for all styles.Avantgarde is 40% lighter than normal sub-bass recorders because it is made of RESONA in a 3D printing process optimized for musical instruments. 3D printing process optimized for musical instruments. The sound of these printed instruments is praised by The sound of these printed instruments is compared to that of Kirschbaum by professional players.Who is this recorder aimed at? Avantgarde is aimed at amateurs, semi-professionals and professional players.The windway of the recorder The windway is the area in the head of the recorder where the musician's blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air blade is the defining element of a recorder's sound. At the labium, the air blade creates the vibration that generates the flute sound. The shape of the windway is therefore very influential The 6605-072-AS model from Kunath Instrumentenbau has a windway that is curved and conical in shape.Conical windways accelerate the air blade more than cylindrically shaped ones. Windways are naturally very complex in their design and many parameters are influenced by each other. Handling The flute AVANTGARDE 6605-072-AS is supplied in the following version: Baroque fingering. Keys It is not always possible to drill tone holes in places in the instrument body that are easy to reach with the hands. For tuning reasons, tone holes on low instruments in particular are located in positions that are not ergonomically accessible. On such instruments, key mechanisms are fitted that make playing considerably easier or even possible in the first place. double flaps particularly convenient. The flap mechanism is made of brass. Stand Included in the scope of delivery. The highlight: thanks to the forward-curved bell of the inner bore, the instrument does not have to be moved to a different playing position. It can be played standing up on the stand.This is clever and safe.
